Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 0 0
Number of Participants in DAS 28 C-reactive Protein (CRP) Remission at Month 12 - Number of participants who achieved remission at Month 12 of treatment, as defined by a Disease Activity Score (DAS) 28-CRP score of <2.6. DAS 28-CRP is a continuous measure, a composite of 4 variables: number of tender joints out of 28 joints, number of swollen joints out of 28 joints, CRP (in mg/L), and subject assessment of disease activity measure on a Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) of 100 millimeters (mm). The DAS28 scale=0 (best) to 10 (worst), indicating the current activity of the rheumatoid arthritis. A DAS28 >5.1 = high disease activity; <=3.2 = low disease activity; <2.6 = remission.

Mean Change From Baseline in Radiographic Total Score to Month 12 - To assess joint damage progression, the Genant-modified Sharp scoring method was used to evaluate radiographs of hands/wrists and feet for erosions and joint space narrowing (JSN). The total Genant-modified Sharp score ranges from 0 (no radiographic damage) to 290 (worst possible radiographic damage) and is the sum of the erosion score (range 0-145) and the joint space narrowing score (range 0-145). Higher scores indicated more damage.

Number of Participants With Anti-abatacept or Anti-CTLA4-T Responses in the Double-blind Period as Analyzed by Enzyme-linked-immunosorbent Serologic Assay (ELISA) - Serum samples were analyzed by ELISA to detect antibodies against the whole molecule (both CTLA4 and Ig [anti-abatacept antibody]) or solely to CTLA4 (anti-CTLA4-T antibody). Reported as titer, the reciprocal of the sample dilution which yielded a signal equivalent to the statistically set cut point for the assay. For the anti-abatacept assay, minimum required dilution is 400-fold, therefore seronegative samples are those < lowest reportable titer (<400). For the anti-CTLA4-T assay, minimum required dilution is 25-fold, therefore seronegative samples are those < lowest reportable titer (<25).
